Ibanez 2018 RG521 Genesis Collection (Made in Japan)

Unleash your inner rockstar with the Ibanez RG521, a formidable addition to the RG series. Crafted with precision in Japan by the renowned FujiGen, this solid-body electric guitar packs a punch and delivers a level of performance that's second to none.

Precision Engineering for Exceptional Playability

The RG521 boasts a basswood body, which sets the stage for a tonal explosion. Bolted to the body is the maple and walnut Super Wizard neck, a design known for its unparalleled playability. With a lightning-fast 24-fret rosewood fingerboard adorned with dot position markers, this guitar offers a smooth, comfortable playing experience that will inspire your creativity.

Powerful Pickups and Hardware

Equipped with dual Ibanez humbucking pickups that are direct mounted to the body, the RG521 is ready to unleash a torrent of sonic fury. The Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge ensures rock-solid tuning stability and precise intonation. When you're shredding at full tilt, the Graph Tech TUSQ nut and locking Gotoh tuning machines ensure your notes stay locked in.

A Nod to Classic Design with a Tilt Neck Joint

The RG521 is part of the Genesis collection, introduced alongside classic reissues like the RG550 and RG570. This model showcases a tilt neck joint with a stamped metal plate, a design reminiscent of classic Ibanez guitars. While it departs from the sculpted All Access neck joint found on most modern RGs, this nod to the past adds a touch of nostalgia to an otherwise cutting-edge instrument.
